Vintage Port is the product of a single vineyard in an exceptional year. It is bottled when it is just two years old, still very full and fruity with high levels of tannin. It matures in the bottle, reaching its peak in ten, fifteen or even longer years. But you do not have to wait that long to enjoy it. Vintage ports can be very enjoyable any time, at any occasion.
